Phi Theta Kappa (PTK)
Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society of two-year colleges. Students are invited to join after attaining an overall 3.5 GPA in 12 hours of college credit, but may also participate in activities as provisional members until they become eligible for membership. Active members have opportunities to develop leadership skills, participate in academic enrichment activities, and develop friendships with fellow Phi Theta Kappa members from all over the country. Membership also qualifies students for many transfer scholarships reserved for Phi Theta Kappa members.
Student Ambassadors are representatives of the student body and hosts to college visitors. Ambassadors work with faculty, staff, students, and the community to promote MCC-Blue River.

Hacky Sack Society
The purpose of the hacky sack club is to provide opportunities for students to meet new people on campus (other students, staff, and faculty), to have a greater sense of belonging while developing a new skill, and to have fun! The Hacky Sack Society will be visible to others on campus, which will hopefully contribute to a fun and welcoming campus culture. Anyone is welcome to join in the hack circle!
